I would not put a ton of stock into star ratings. Johnny Manziel was a 3 star.
I literally was just watching them 2 min ago. dude straight schooled Nigel bethel on that short post. Same with beating that jam on that deep route. He is pretty strong and looks ripped for 167 pounds or whatever he is.
Ahhh ! Speed is coming back to Gainesville. With Brandon powell, and lock in McKenzie and miles Autry, we will have a litter of lighting bolts running around.
Every year people say this. I really wish people would just stop. Anecdotal evidence doesn't disprove the relevance of rankings.
Agreed but it also shows that many often get underrated often because they don't fit the prototypical size of a particular position. Jarrad davis is another good example, 3* but he was looking like the baddest man out there. Thank goodness for game tape and coach evaluations
Ratings aside, the kids that show up at the All-Star games usually have good college careers. This kid flashed at UA All Star game. Sign him up.
It is funny watching guys take bad angles on him.
the 1st team All SEC WRs were 3 star Jordan Matthews- Vandy and 2 star Mike Evans-TAMU
At 168, I don't see him breaking SEC tackles. Demps and Rainey were fast, but went down too easily.
You're probably correct but I see Roper getting players the ball in space.
This is something that drove me nuts with Charlie Weiss. He had speed demons in Rainey and Demps, and he hands the ball off to them in the backfield and sends them through the middle of the line. One touch and they went down. Why couldn't he get them swinging out of the backfield, get them matched up on linebackers, or somewhere out in space more often. Hopefully Roper will know how to get these types of players the ball where they have room to make people miss and pick up big yards.
Still anecdotal. Some need a randomized placebo controlled recruiting trial to show that recruiting rankings aren't the be all end all.
But they also broke a 70 yard td runs. We have Adam lane and Matt jones to break tackles, we need guys who can make the first guy miss and out run the rest.
Well, ideally, that's what Taylor and Powell are here for--and it's my understanding that Lane has a pretty good motor on him too. But I agree.
This kid is dynamic! Just get him the ball in space and watch him leave defenders in his wake! Would love to see him lined up in the slot running the jet sweep or coming out of the backfield for a short pass matched up against a LB! Wait…that's just not fair….is it?
No way we get all those guys, least of all Carter. With Lane gone, I think Adoree is a WR target. Even then, I think we're a distant second for him. I think we'd make room for McKenzie anyway. Looks like a better WR prospect than anyone left on our board.
I would tone down the hyperbole. McKenzie was measured at 5'8, 160 and ran only a 4.56 40 and (frankly pretty bad) 4.54 shuttle at camp per his ESPN profile. He essentially has the size of Rainey without apparently having the quickness or top-end speed.
That being said, I woudl agree that we are unlikely to land Jackson and McKenzie may be as good a plan B as we are likely to find.
Mackenzie looks perfect for Roper's offense, IMO. Better than Lane. Really want to see us land him.
I don't think you saw his highlights. He is small, but he's a player, and looks every bit as fast as Rainey to me. Very good vision and explodes past defenders when he sees space.
Against the like of UK and weaker UT teams. Not so much against better Ds.
